First two pitches easily link with a 60 m rope, sustained aid over a small roof up a thin crack to a hanging piton belay. Nailed a crack with a few free moves on the pitch. Crux pitch has hard aid just before a drilled piton belay that was hand loose with stacked pitons. Free moves protected with only one drilled piton just above the belay, one large beat out piton hole in bad rock followed by a half driven pin also in bad rock. Pull over the summit cap with free moves. This route seemed seldom climbed with very poor rock all along the way. Retreat seemed possible at any time with double 60m ropes.

This route was pure fear for me for the three days we worked it. I took some risks that I feel were only a matter of chance that they didnt end badly for me. I resolved to take up knitting as a hobby instead after climbing this route.
